VIEW CLOSING LETTER

Monday the 22nd, August 2011

Nearly seven years have passed and much has changed since the inception of Cypher13.

Now we are two, Todd Berger and Lucian Föhr. Together, we have grown considerably - in principle, in thought, and in capacity - but not in number.

We have grown in practice.

We have chosen to pursue quality in all things - over quantity. This has come to define our craft and those with whom we wish to partner and to serve. We have chosen objectivity over subjectivity, accountability over bureaucracy, and personal responsibility over ambiguity.

And so, we have decided to close Cypher13 and to open a new design studio. We will usher in a new era of socially significant, lasting, far-reaching work.

We will strive to do better.

Goodbye Cypher13.

Welcome Berger & Föhr.

Sincerely,
Todd Berger
Lucian Föhr

    1UP - Pure Gold

    For their 2011 line-up, Humanoid Wake commissioned us to design the 1UP - their crown jewel. Rather than take an illustrative approach we chose to focus on a few select design elements to further highlight some of this new, first-to-market, board's features. A base printed in PANTONE 871 U (metallic gold) featuring a debossed Humanoid logomark makes this board, pure gold. Look for the 1UP to drop soon.
